Dresses with grown-up hemlines, fall edition

8

The pinkish snake print and streamlined-but-flowy shape make this dress feminine in a really modern way.

I dig the print here: it’s kind of floral but also kind of camo, and the green really pops.

Such a chic little high-necked leopard print shift—it reminds me a little of old Jane Mayle.

It’s Universal Standard’s excellent and so-flattering Geneva dress, but with long sleeves for cooler weather.

This pink dress is a pretty girly choice for me, but I think there’s something really elegant about it.

I like that the color here is kind of unexpected, and the blouson top with the pencil skirt bottom looks sophisticated in a really easy way.

I realize this slinky number might require some tricky maneuvering in the bra department, but I think it’d be so great for a kind of fancy party.

I’d swap out the belt here for something more substantial, and pair this cool green floral with brown knee-high boots.

The zipper front on this sweet Alexa Chung dress keeps it from coming off too prissy.

This faded-out leopard print is such a good throw-it-on-and-go piece, and it’d look great with a bright cardigan.

I don’t usually go in for flounce, but it’s done so minimally on this Veronica Beard dress that I can handle it, and this is such a pretty print. Also, good on Shopbop for dipping their toe into the world of size-inclusive models.

The ballerina pink here is just the perfect ballerina pink.

A good dress for an important meeting at work—it just telegraphs put-togetherness.

    Oooooh, love these, Kim! I just ordered the faded leopard print dress from Anthro! And big news– they now calculate the Duty to Canada in advance and you can pre-pay!

    I love all the dresses in this post – thank you! I struggle to find dresses that are stylish, comfortable and ahem, age-appropriate, but you hit the nail on the head with all of these.

    This has to be one of my favorite GOACA posts of all time. There are so many dresses I like.

    Dresses with grown-up hemlines have always been my favorite. There was a long drought, but now there are so many fabulous choices again. Thank you.

    I love almost ALL of these! Now I want someplace to go so I can wear them. 😉 I think the pink dress is elegant, too, but that model makes it so!

    I own the leopard shift from Anthropologie (3rd dress from top of post) and am wearing it today! It’s great for work and super comfy. I’ve worn it loose, but the website also shows it styled with a belt.
